  • I like that a lab is co-located in the facility with my doctor, however for my last two annual physical/checkup appointments, I was unable to get lab work done the day of the appointment. It would be convenient if a lab appointment could be made along with the annual physical/checkup given that most/all annual checkups require blood work.Last year, I did not get a follow-up call regarding my annual blood work. We should get a follow-up call or portal message with the doctor's analysis of the blood work.The doctor was very friendly and attentive for this year's annual checkup.

I trust him and admire him. I feel so lucky to have him as my doctor.

  • It was a pleasure meeting Dr Byon. I would have appreciated him including in my visit record the recommendation he had on dosage for Advil with Tylenol. Just to be sure I heard him correctly in my somewhat foggy COVID state. Otherwise very helpful, supportive and encouraging as to what I needed to do if I felt worse. I had confidence in his assessment and recommendations.

  • It took 2 weeks before I was able to be seen, but I asked and was told I could be placed on a cancellation list. My additional appointments/referrals were taken care of before I left the office and everyone was kind and professional.

  • Would be more convenient to get labs done at same time as appointment. Very inconvenient to have to schedule days/weeks later. And for routine physical would be even better to have labs done in advance so results could be discussed. Both were routine at previous doctor in man.

  • Dr. Byon is a very knowledgeable physician who is also very good when it comes to patient relations. He handled my situation, as he has done in the past, extremely well. He took whatever time was needed to explain everything and quite frankly, I feel that I could be still in the office with him as I write this note had I still had questions to be answered.He is a great addition to your staff and I hope that management does whatever is necessary to make sure that he remains as part of the team.

  • Dr. Byon is awesome, very down to earth and genuinely cares about my health. His follow-up to a question I had about my labs was super quick. I wish I had become his patient many years ago.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
